My submission to Holiday Window



I chose a natural theme with birds. I adore bird art which is a popular theme for a lot of artist these days. It always amazes me how different each artist work is.
I used the 6x6 canvas that will keep the window display uniform and did my usual mixed media collage work on them working with all 3 at once.
I then added the birds from 2 different sources. One was a napkin that displayed 2 different birds and one was a photo that I cut out. I added natural and purchased ephemera to each canvas keeping them similar but not the same. I'm pleased with the results and now I hope someone else will think so too.

I have a double shift at the gallery on Thursday and will take photos of how the window looks and post soon.
